Abstract: In this lecture, the speaker discusses a series of studies that examine how social influence can be an important factor in our consumption behavior. He first discusses research that has investigated how other consumers can play a strong role in influencing our purchase and consumption in a retail setting. He then looks at the social influence exercised by salespeople in a retail context specifically how these influencers shape our purchase experience. The implications of these distinct social forces will be discussed and future research opportunities will be identified.
